Russian Tuner Makes Jaguar XJ Anti-Chrome Statement
Their future plans include several possible dilutions of the brand, including a crossover and a rival for the MINI hatchback, but for now, their image is intact. So even though the XJ is a big car, you can still use sporty accents to give it false credentials and people won’t have you for it.
One tuning company in Russia called Re-Styling has received one such job from a customer, who didn’t want chrome on his beautiful red saloon.
And so they set to work removing the grille and all the other shiny elements on the car, including the blades for the brake intakes and the side molding for the glass. The factory chrome was replaced with a gloss black finish, which just makes the whole car pop out more from a distance.
They also retrofitted a new set of multi-spoke light ally wheels finished in the same sort of color. However, Jaguar also makes this sort of cosmetic change available with the XJ Sport Exterior Package.
